Creating a Connection Pool

Each connection pool is associated with a specific connection string. By default, the connection pool is created when the first connection with a unique connection string connects to the data source. The pool is populated with connections up to the minimum pool size before the first connection is returned. Additional connections can be added until the pool reaches the maximum pool size. If the Max Pool Size option is set to 10 and all connections are active, a request for an eleventh connection has to wait in queue for one of the 10 pool connections to become idle. The pool remains active until the process ends or the driver is unloaded.
If a new connection is opened and the connection string does not exactly match an existing pool, a new pool must be created. By using the same connection string, you can enhance the performance and scalability of your application.
